CommScope Ignition Program


In a world driven by technology, a STEM-based education is the new currency. But how do you inspire young students to explore the possibilities of a career in STEM? Let them touch it, hear it and experience it for themselves—then give them the tools to pursue their passion. That’s what the CommScope Ignition Program is all about.

About the Ignition Program

The Ignition Program is designed to inspire students to explore STEM-based learning. Partnering with Trackhouse Racing and driver, Daniel Suárez, we’re bringing the excitement of NASCAR technology to select schools.

At each school, students will hear from Suárez and other experts about the critical role technology plays during a NASCAR race. Kids can climb inside a replica of Suárez’s #99 Chevy Camaro and see where it all comes together. Additionally, each event includes giveaways, photo opportunities and more.

More than sparking kids’ imaginations, CommScope is helping schools bridge the digital divide. We’re offering selected schools a no-cost network assessment and customized stimulus funding report. The goal is to help school IT professionals connect more students to the online resources that can feed their curiosity.

Kids already spend hours a day playing games like Days of Thunder, iRACING and NASCAR Heat. Yet how many realize that gaming is a stepping stone to a brighter future? NASCAR and CommScope’s Ignition Program help students see the connection.
  • NASCAR and the Ignition Program provide the perfect bridge, showing kids that their interest in motorsports and gaming can become a rewarding and successful career.
  • NASCAR was a pioneer in promoting STEM, inside the classroom and out. Its Acceleration Nation initiative has become one of the most requested Scholastic partnership resources by teachers.
  • Over 100 million data points alone are created in a single weekend during a NASCAR race.
